Paparazzi in movies

Is any one tired of seeing actors playing the part of a newspaper or paparazzi photographer and they have no idea of how to hold a camera?

A good example is in the movie I am watching tonight, "The Other Guys" with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Within the first few scenes there is a media interview and the photographer is holding the camera by the flash with his right hand yet the flash is going off, just laughable. This is not the first time I have seen actors holding the camera by the flash, usually by their left hand, so how do they zoom lol.

Surely someone on the sets of these movies could show them how to hold a camera?
